The digital leaders had a busy day today running workshops for all four classes! This is what they thought about their day:
We have learnt many teaching skills in these sessions and feel that our point has come across well about internet safety. Each class has listened carefully and seemed to understand and enjoy their activities. We used a story called ‘Smartie the Penguin’ with class 1, ‘Digiduck’ with class 2 and a powerpoint that used ‘Mitch the stay safe, surfing Monkey’ with classes 3 and 4.
Children had a chance to make posters and sort cards with safe and unsafe scenarios and had fun with our cuddly characters. We hope that our internet safety day has helped everyone to understand how to stay safe when using technology. Look out for the SMART posters around school for the golden rules of staying safe.

Here are some quotes from children who enjoyed their workshops:
Lily “ It was fun doing the activity and I learnt that if any pop ups come onto the screen we should tell a responsible adult.”
Toby “ I enjoyed the activity and learnt how to deal with any tricky problems on the computer.”
Jeremiah “ It was a fun activity and I learnt that I shouldn’t make friends online without my parents permission.”
Jasmine “ It was helpful to see how to stay safe online and it reminded me of the things that are important about our internet safety and who to trust.”
